Many students say there is no easy way to write college papers. This may be especially true if English is not your first language. Most teachers agree that there is no single “correct” way to create a personal essay or a research paper. But there are methods to help you structure your papers. One way often used to structure writing is the traditional five-paragraph essay. Many students learn this form in middle and high school. The paragraphs follow conventions, or established rules. The first paragraph is introductory. It tells the reader what the paper is about. It is followed by three paragraphs containing evidence that support the writer’s argument. The final paragraph is the conclusion. It provides a reasoned opinion based on the evidence. Allison Cummings teaches at Southern New Hampshire University. She is among many professors who find this form too simple for college work. Still, on the positive side, Ms. Cummings says the five-paragraph essay form teaches a student some tools for writing a paper. She says the form teaches the need for an opening statement, or thesis. This thesis tells the reader what will come next. But she also says the five-paragraph essay falls far short of college writing needs. Students will be asked to write about more complex subjects. Ms. Cummings says noting the way the research is structured can help students organize their own writing. She also provides her students with examples of successful and unsuccessful student papers from the past. That way, her class can see what works in a piece of writing, and what does not.
